I've completed the first section of Cerisara - the top back section. My next step is to add the neckband and start the fronts (I think it involves short rows, but I've decided to just take it step by step and not overthink it - it looks scary all written out in the pattern, but I've done enough of Bonne Marie's patterns to know that she knows what she's doing). Once I get the fronts to this same place, I think I'll be joining everything in the round and it should be pretty straightforward from there. The lace stitch pattern is really easy to work and fast to memorize so this first section has been pretty zippy. Of course once I have the whole thing (fronts and back) on the needles it will slow down some, but working in the round does that. I always feel like I'm getting no where, but really, each time around adds more to the sweater than one row would working in pieces. Does anyone else feel like this when they knit in the round?
